fully demonstrated here during
the 1930 season by the Oregon

on irrigated pastures. .
A savin in feed costs of 29
cents -for every 100 pounds of
milk produced by using the irri
gated pasture Tather than dry
feed was shown last summer dur
ing m. two-week "berlod when the
corns had to he stall fed because
of over-pasturing - of the experi
mental tract. . During the . period
there was le ain in weight per
cow and less production.
The second year a results hore
out the findings of the previous
year, in which j It was Indicated
that high-returns may be expect
ed from such a pasture tract. The
gross returns last year, the cir
cular on 1930 results Just pub
lished" here shows, are larger
than . for the previous year, al
though because of higher pasture
costs, the net returns are slightly
lower than in, 1929. j,
